Have you ever dreamed of starring in a horrific fictional death? I know! Me too!
I am now in full swing on writing Sole Killer while also reviewing the minor beats of the story as I go along. As I was doing a minor beat review the other day, I happened upon a scene that demanded an awful death. And that’s where you may come in.
Have you ever wanted to be immortalized in my work? And have you dreamed that your starring role would come in the form of a gruesome fictional death? If you answered yes to those two questions, you’ve come to the right place! For the first time ever before in the history of anything I’ve written, I’m offering up the questionable honor of dying horribly in one of my books. I know, I know. I’m too kind. I don’t want to give away too many details because half the fun will be when the winner reads the scene where his/her fictional doppelganger meets his/her end. All I can promise is that 1. Fictional death is assured and 2. It will be unnecessarily messy.
Maybe it’s an honor you’d like to claim for yourself. Maybe it’s an honor you’d like to bestow upon an unfavored mother-in-law. Maybe you’ll finally get revenge on that bully from sixth grade. Who knows what angle you’ll choose to take. So, how does it work? Well, it’s easy.
1. Head over to my Facebook page and send me a friend request. Yeah, I’m lonely over there. If you don’t do FB, sneak onto a friend’s account. They’ll thank you later!
2. Reply to the below FB thread with your chosen first and last name. (Any obviously identifiable names will be rejected. A few examples would be Taylor Swift, Donald Trump or Santa Claus.)
3. This one is optional and for those who want to go full macabre. Describe the most imaginative/outrageous/memorable fictional death you can imagine. I already have the scene and situation in mind for the aforementioned fictional demise, but hey, if your idea is better than mine, maybe I’ll incorporate it somehow.
The opportunity will end when I get to that scene during first draft writing. At that time, I’ll use a random number generator based on the number of possibilities and come up with a winner. The name will be announced and then everyone will get to see how it plays out when the book is released.
Yeah, it should be fun!
